Huawei announces pricing and availability of the MatePad 11.5 LTE and MateBook 16s
Huawei announced the local availability and pricing of its MateBook 16s and MatePad 11.5 LTE.
The Huawei MateBook 16s comes with a 2.5K 16-inch touchscreen that has a peak brightness of up to 400nits. It is powered by the 13th-generation Intel Core i9-13900H processor with 16GB of dual-channel memory and a 1TB PCIe SSD.
One of its innovative features is the Huawei Metaline antenna, which allows the MateBook 16s to achieve a long-distance, smooth and stable Wi-Fi connection of up to 270m. Huawei claims its Metaline antenna can penetrate walls so that the MateBook 16s can enjoy stable connectivity even when it is in a room far away from the router.
For users who engage in video calls, the Huawei MateBook 16s has AI Camera and AI Sound to deliver an optimal experience. The FollowCam feature keeps the user in the center of the frame (like Apple’s Centre Stage) while the Personal Voice Enhancement helps to suppress background noises so that the user’s voice remains clear during the presentation.
The Huawei MatePad 11.5 LTE sports a 11.5-inch FullView IPS Display with a 2.2K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and 3:2 aspect ratio. It has a unibody design made out of a whole piece of aluminium alloy and measures 6.85mm thin.
Running under the hood are the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 mobile platform, 6/8GB RAM configuration options, 128GB internal storage space, HarmonyOS 3.1 and a 7,700mAh battery.
Other specs include Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, quad-speaker setup, a rear 13MP f/1.8 autofocus camera, and a front-facing 8MP f/2.2 fixed focus camera.
